“Act now, this offer won’t last”

“You get what you pay for”
“Quantities are limited”
Slick lines like these are met with derision, as they should be. Effective marketing is credible, concise, and compelling by making clear the value the client will receive. As the marketing evangelists for their companies, salespeople must avoid suave approaches, canned responses, and feature-benefit laden speeches that only serve to put off customers instead… Continue

Twice in less than a week I found myself with animals being euthanized—early last week it was my son’s dog Max and this past Saturday night our Vizsla, Sadie. Sure, in both cases these loyal companions had lived long lives, however, it doesn’t make it any easier.
Watching my son tearfully pet his dog for the last…

Having to tell my son, Ben, his dog had to be euthanized this past Tuesday is now on my top ten list of life’s crappy moments. Seeing him cry as he said goodbye to Max, yep, that’s on the list as well. That same day, a girl with whom he was starting a relationship suddenly ended their friendship by text. As Ben put it, “this day can’t get any worse.”
As a Dad, I want to shield Ben from these hurts in life. But I can’t, which really pisses me off at times! So I did the next best… Continue

A while back I was asked by Donald, a CEO I advise, for my top best practice on increasing revenues generated by his sales team. I told him what I tell all my clients: the most effective way to sell more is by doing less selling. I could tell by his expression this was not the answer he expected, and he confirmed this when he asked me to explain.
His staffing and RPO company, like many organizations, was engaging buyers in a selling experience. They used a number of the traditional… Continue
